Greater Yellowstone is defined by blue-ribbon trout streams, grizzly bears and the longest wildlife migration corridor in the continental United States. But these treasures are now threatened by expanding energy development pressures and growing populations.
At Wilderness, we're working to protect this iconic American wildland from these threats and preserve the landscape's natural and human benefits.
Greater Yellowstone is one of the most recognized wildlands in America, but it is best discovered through the eyes of local residents whose lives are rooted in the land.
At Wilderness, our work within Greater Yellowstone is rooted in several focal wildlands that need protection.
You can help protect Greater Yellowstone so that it remains as iconic and wild as it is today.

The Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act (S. 1407/H.R. 2663) was introduced in the 114th Congress with strong bi-partisan support in both the House and Senate. This common sense legislation promotes the responsible production of renewable energy on public lands while ensuring communities and local conservation efforts see benefits from development.
